I agree with you people don't look or thank about how much having uniforms is going to coast. Increasing numbers of students are wearing school uniforms. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the percentage of public schools requiring uniforms increased from 12 percent in 1999-2000 to 19 percent in 2009-10, according to the U.S. Department of Education. The percentage of principals who reported a strict dress code increased from 47 percent in 1999-2000 to 57 percent. Many students like to choose what they wear and what there fashion is they don't want to be like everyone else, but a pro about having school uniforms is that you would be able to tell when there is an intruder in the school because everyone will be wearing the same thing except for that person.

I agree with you our school for example has and anti-bullying program called RAKE I'm actually in that program. Even though we have this program it doesn't mean its going to do anything we are hoping it does. So many people are cyber bullied outside of school and most of the people that are bullied don't like to come out and say anything because they might be afraid of getting attacked by a bully even more for saying something about it to someone. These students that are bullied need to not be so afraid to come out and talk to someone and tell them whats happening. Another example would be me for instance when people bully me online or by text message I either tell my mom and show her what these people are saying or I go to a concealer and talk to them about the situation. Yes I would admit that I don't come out right away and tell someone but eventually I do because I can't take it anymore. Last year was probably the worst year for me getting bullied I was at the point of suicidal thoughts but then I went and got help and now i'm glad that I didn't do but for some of those kids they just want to be out of this world. It's sad to think and see about how many people try to commit suicide due to bullying.

I totally agree with you I believe that students cheat do to stress and pressure. Most students believe that cheating is okay in order to be successful in school and future life. Everything is based on a grading scale now so more students are cheating in order to be successful. Cheating is not okay to do but students believe it is and students have confessed to cheating sometime in there life. According to Harvard University nearly half the students in an introductory government class are suspected of jointly coming up with answers or copying off one another. Groups of students appear to have worked together on responses to short questions and an essay assignment, violating a no-collaboration policy that was printed on the exam itself, said Jay Harris, Harvard's dean of undergraduate education. Carmichael, Mary. "Harvard Accuses 125 of Cheating." Boston Globe. 31 Aug. 2012: A.1. SIRS Issues Researcher. Web. 23 Apr. 2014.

I would be against school uniforms personally because I don't like being dressed the same as everyone else. With everyone wearing the same exact thing everyday doesn't give you the choice to chose what you want to wear. Some schools have banned people from wearing leggings, and if they do then they have to wear a shirt or skirt over it that goes to there fingertips which means it has to cover there behind. If this was the cause for our school we would have a little bit of anger to say because most girls wear leggings to school everyday. a federal court agreed with a school district in Morgan Hill, Calif., after some high school students were told not to wear American flag T-shirts on the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo in 2010. The worry was that the shirts would incite conflict with the school's many Hispanic students. Then there was the matter of yoga pants, which are tight like leggings, but flared at the bottom. Did the fingertip rule also apply to those types of pants, especially when no one could tell the difference if they were tucked into boots, which is also a popular style among teens?

Irvine, Martha. "Dress Codes: Where Should Schools Set Limits?." Chicago Tribune. 16 Apr. 2014: n.p. SIRS Issues Researcher. Web. 23 Apr. 2014. Not only is the current uniform policy socially impractical; it is economically impractical as well. Students now have two wardrobes, one for leisurely wear and a second set comprised of school polos that cost much more. In fact, it is most detrimental to impoverished families who struggle just to make ends meet.Ankersen, Dylan. "School Uniforms Undermine Freedom." Gainesville Sun. 03 Mar. 2014: n.p.

I agree with you students shouldn't get paid for good grades. Paying kids for grades isn't going to help them anywhere in life. Students do just go to school and do work for money they go to school to learn and to get a better education in the future. Giving students money doesn't help them learn what they are in school to learn. 30 percent of college freshmen last year had to take remedial courses. Teachers tended to feel a little frustrated, and there was concern about how many students would pass or fail. There has been a noticeable grade increase within the last 15-20 years.

I believe that if we had tougher laws it wouldn't really do much kids/adults would still use their phones and would be texting and/or talking on the phone while driving. If your foot is on the brake pedal, and you are texting, it is a violation" punishable by a fine ranging from $90 to $500 in Chicago. it takes 4.6 seconds on average to read or send a text while behind the wheel, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So in less time than it takes to type "AYTMTB" (shorthand for "And you're telling me this because"), any one of thousands of "smart" signals in Chicago and the suburbs that react to vehicle volume can change from red to green. In Illinois, almost 6,000 crashes have occurred from 2008 to 2012 in which some form of driver distraction involving a cellphone was cited by police, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. The toll included 30 fatalities and more than 2,500 injuries, IDOT said. state police troopers issued about 2,300 citations and more than 1,300 warnings for texting while driving.

I would definitely say that our school does not do enough for bullying. I see kids being picked on everyday in school but I don't see anyone doing anything about it during school. Even when kids are bullied off school grounds and someone sees it they don't do anything as well as when kids are bullied on school grounds they don't do anything. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly a 1/3 of all students aged 12 - 18 reported having been bullied at school some almost daily.The most effective ways to prevent or lessen bullying require school administrators' commitment and intensive effort; police interested in increasing school safety can use their influence to encourage schools to address the problem.A recent study of a nationally representative sample of students found higher levels of bullying in America than in some other countries. 13% of 6th- through 10th-grade students bully, 10% reported being victims, and an additional 6% are victim-bullies. This study excluded elementary-age students (who often experience high levels of bullying) and did not limit bullying to school grounds. Several smaller studies from different parts of the country confirm high levels of bullying behaviors, with 10 to 29 percent of students reported to be either bullies or victims. This shows that our schools don't do enough to stop bullying. Maybe we should teach all teachers on how to notice bullying more and have the students that are being bullied open up to teachers and other staff so they know whats happening and they can try to help prevent it from happening again. By teachers and students doing this we could try to end bullying in our schools. Bullying leads kids and adults ages 9-21 to suicide.researchers calculated that kids who were bullied were 2.23 times as likely to think about killing themselves than kids who had not been victimized.

The researchers also found nine well-conducted studies about bullying and its relationship to suicide attempts. These studies included data on 70,102 people ages 9 to 21. The Dutch researchers ran the numbers and reported that kids and teens who were bullied were 2.55 times as likely to attempt suicide than their counterparts who had not been victimized. In the United States, between 5 percent and 8 percent of teenagers tries to kill themselves each year. Kaplan, Karen. "Teens Taunted by Bullies Are More Likely to Consider, Attempt Suicide." Los Angeles Times. 10 Mar. 2014: n.p. SIRS Issues Researcher. Web. 22 Apr. 2014.

I agree libraries should ban books that are way to sexual and violent because some students do know how to properly act to books like that. Some people get offended by books that have sexual content in them. The swearing in books I understand and it is okay because high school student and middle school students swear all the time. I also hear younger kids swearing all the time. I believe that if the kid is mature enough to handle what they are reading then they can read it if they aren't mature enough to then they shouldn't be reading the book.

I think that students should have the right to choose what books they want to read and to chose what books are appropriate for their age group. I agree that some books should be banned but most students should know how to act when there's a bad word or sexual sentence or statement when reading something. If the students don't know how to act when they come across something like that in a book or magazine whatever they are reading then they probably shouldn't be reading it. There's so many books out there that are banned but to me they shouldn't be like "The adventure Of Huckleberry Finn" you wouldn't think to ban that book because it's letting us know what it was like back then and what it was like to be a slave and how much work they had to do all day but there are some books that honestly should be banned. Most students are mature enough to handle that kind of situation when they come across it when reading something they don't make a big deal about it.
